Is your utility "nudging" you to use less power?
PSNH is running a experiment in the hopes of curbing some energy use. It's sending some customers extra information in each bill, comparing that month's energy use to past months - or to the energy use of other households in the area. That extra info, the thinking goes, will get customers thinking a little more about their energy use, and might lead some of them to cut back a bit.
This kind of practice is known as "nudging" - a way to get people to change their behavior without feeling like they're having to make a change. PSNH is one of several utilities trying to "nudge" customers into decreasing their energy use.
Are you, or is someone you know, a PSNH customer who's receiving this extra information in your bill? Or are you a customer of New Hampshire Electric Cooperative taking part in its program to cut energy use? If so, tell us about your experience below.
Are you ready for your winter electric bill?
